[TYLER] HAS NEVER BEEN STRONGER.”–The New York TimesMacon Leary is a travel writer who hates both travel and anything out of the ordinary.

EVOCATIVE . . . It’s easy to forget this is the warm lull of fiction; you half-expect to run into her characters at the dry cleaners . . . Tyler [is] a writer of great compassion.”–The Boston Globe“Tyler has given us an endlessly diverting book whose strength gathers gradually to become a genuinely thrilling one.”–Los Angeles Times“A DELIGHT . . . A GRACEFUL COMIC NOVEL ABOUT GETTING THROUGH LIFE.”–The Wall Street Journal
